Walkera Owners Thread

Thanks for the feedback, reputation and market presence are indeed a problem.  I'm currently interested in micros because I can't fly anything over 500mm main rotor diameter for space restrictions (indoor, back yard).  I started with Blade products and wasn't impressed (Scout, MSRX, 130X).  In fact the only Blade machine without problems was the Scout and you grow out of that within a week.  Walkera certainly trumps those on price and reliability.  I haven't had a problem sourcing either new machines (V120D02S-V2, 4F200LM, V200D03) or parts in Hongkong or China proper (if all fails there's also the US option).  So for me it's basically a cost/benefit exercise within the current offerings.
Naturally I'll be tempted by new contenders, especially the Lynx teasers.  
Happy flying
